Seems quite a few bros here read Chinese novels. Other than wu-xia, probably Ni Kuang's sci-fi is the most popular genre and many were made into movies and TV series. Recent discussion on JY novels made me want to re-read all these books again.

 

The 衛斯理 novel that left the most lasting impression on me was 【頭髮】 (Hair). The whole story revolves around how the human race are criminals exiled to planet Earth by the "gods" from the "heavens". The four main religious leaders are alien observers sent to Earth at different times. When I watched Ridley Scott's Prometheus movie, it reminded me of this book written by Ni Kuang in the 1970's.

【天外金球】(The Legend of Golden Pearl) was made into a movie starring Sam Hui (許冠傑) and Joey Wong (王祖賢) in the 80's, and must be one of the first HK movies to use computer graphics.

Ni Kuang also wrote wuxia novels and movie scripts such as 獨臂刀, and helped to write part of 天龍八部.

 

What are your favorite Ni Kuang books or movies, and why ?

Some how the Chinese title doesn't show up correctly. How to edit ?

My first 卫斯理 novel was 蓝血人. It was an eye opener for me as I didnt know and think there is any sci fi type of story in chinese at all. But I dont really follow or read a lot of the series, just a few.

I also jia kan tan one. But I only read English book as need to write review during school days.
Wei Shili series is easy to understand and can be quite additive.

All my reading are all during the schooling days. Forgot most of the title already. But 蓝血人,头发 definitely read before. Some of book still kept at my parents place. During school days often exchange with classmates to read.

despite being Chinese-helicoptered, reading Chinese books will make me fall asleep before I managed to finish a single page.  [laugh] A very powerful sleep-inducing "drug" good cure for insomia.

I also don't remember most of the stories. I think JY stories can remember because over the years, always got new movies and TV series to refresh memory. When got time, search online for e-books. [laugh]
